Speaking to BBC Breakfast, weather presenter Owain Wyn Jones told viewers the Bank Holiday weekend will remain dry and sunny and this will continue into next week. He explained the steady weather is due to an area of high pressure currently lingering over the UK which is keeping the rain away. But he warned patches of cloud will roll in from the north of Scotland bringing cooler weather in its wake but it will still remain dry.

Mr Wyn Jones said: “An area of high pressure is going to keep us company not only today but tomorrow, into the Bank Holiday weekend and will actually extend into this coming week as well:

“Majority of us seeing the dry weather and the sunny spells as well – it’s not however a completely clear cut story.”

He explained how an area of high pressure covering the UK will deliver dry weather through Saturday and Sunday but there will be some breezy weather in southeastern areas.

He added: “Breezy across southeastern parts of England, a couple of showers as well potentially
